Numbers I've seen indicate that outsourcing is mostly shifting jobs
overseas that used to be outsourced to companies in the US. Which
companies have you heard of shifting their *core competency* IT
outside of the company? What broad numbers do you have to
substantiate your assertion? Game development is a growth area, and
is not being shifted overseas -- other countries complain about being
shut out of the industry.
At UCSC we've seen a slight uptick in CS enrollments this year -- the
standard boom/bust cycle in CS enrollments seems to be coming to an end.
